Random information on the term “Steaming”:
Mantou (simplified Chinese: 馒头; traditional Chinese: 饅頭), often referred to as Chinese steamed bun, is a white and soft type of steamed bread or bun popular in Northern China. Folk etymology connects the name mantou to a tale about Zhuge Liang.
Mantou are typically eaten as a staple food in northern parts of China where wheat, rather than rice, is grown. They are made with milled wheat flour, water and leavening agents. In size and texture, they range from 4 centimetres (1.6 in), soft and fluffy in the most elegant restaurants, to over 15 centimetres (5.9 in), firm and dense for the working man’s lunch. As white flour, being more heavily processed, was once more expensive, white mantou were something of a luxury in pre-industrial China.
Traditionally, mantou, bing, and wheat noodles were the staple carbohydrates of the northern Chinese diet, analogous to rice, which forms the mainstay of the southern Chinese diet. They are also known in the south, but are often served as street food or a restaurant dish, rather than as a staple or home cooking. Restaurant mantou are often smaller and more delicate and can be further manipulated, for example, by deep frying and dipping in sweetened condensed milk.
